HC Deb 12 December 1944 vol 406 cc1063-4W
Captain Prescott

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is now able to grant permission for the spinning of a quantity of non-utility yarn for sampling and experimental purposes.

Captain Waterhouse

The spinning of yarns for sampling or experimental purposes cannot be allowed to impede the output of essential goods. But spinners equipped to spin these yarns without interference with essential production may apply to the Cotton Controller for permission to do so.
